Book Blurb
Sarfaraz is brought up with a good value system by his devoted parents. With time, curiosity and adolescent growth pangs take him through many experiences. His first brush with girls starts with a friend, and slowly meanders into casual flirtatious affairs with girls at college. 

All through it, he realises that none of them have his undying, true love. A time comes when he realises who he truly loves, and in the midst of it all, he handles brutal enmity and takes on vile characters that misbehave with his friends. 

Sarfaraz grows up in Coimbatore where a series of bomb blasts occur. His identity is called in question, as his status as a Muslim makes people see him as an enemy. He loses something precious in the blasts and leaves to Sharjah, only for life to find him and surprise him.

Review

Jagdish Joghee’s second novel ‘The colour of Love’ is a well-crafted urban teen love story.

Author has created a magic with his simplicity of thoughts and storytelling talent. The language used in the book is easy to comprehend and the novel qualifies as a delightful light read.

The love story of the protagonist, Sarfaraz, is a realistic and adorable one. The portrayal of the leading characters, like Meghna and Sarfaraz, is done thoughtfully. The college moments described in the story brings a smile on the reader’s face.

The author has glue in his words. His words, like adhesive, bind readers to his story. The emotions are well described.

The story plot is woven thoughtfully and the twists and turns keep the audience to the edge of their seats. Not to mention, the lovable ending is like a cherry on the top.   

Definitely, a reader can say, that the author has progressed as a writer, in his second book. The difference is visible through his work. No doubt, the first novel “In Love and Free” is also an entertaining one time read, but this time, I must say, Jagdish Joghee has taken the story to another level. 


Cover and Title


The title is just a plus to the cliched and beautiful cover. It has a mesmerizing effect with the simple white clouds in the background and a couple standing under a tree holding hand in hand. Simple and adorable.
The subtitle is something wow! 


“Trumpets and bugles, there was music all over… They fell in love, yet again…”

Awaiting author’s 3rd book 🙂

About the Author


Born and brought up in the beautiful hill town of Coonoor in the Nilgiris, Jagdish Joghee has always been attracted to the hills and the forests. Growing up in the midst of serenity, Jagdish had enough inspiration to write poems in his school days. He now lives in Chennai, where he works for a leading global information technology services company. Jagdish has worked in some of the top IT companies in India. His passion for writing started early, during his school days. Being a closet writer, Jagdish’s writing was initially confined to journals and scrapbooks. 


Jagdish is an active blogger and writes on issues that have a social impact, apart from reviewing Indian movies. This book is his second attempt at fiction. His first book In Love and Free received a good response encouraging him to continue to pursue his passion. He considers himself more of a story teller than a writer.
